Bethany's a tennis star!
Bethany's a tennis star!

My sister's name is Bethany. She is my favorite person in the world. Her heart is always so full of love. She cares for everyone she meets, always ready with a big hug. She is a great athlete, having won a silver and bronze medal in past tennis competitions. Next year, she's planning on winning the gold! She is a ballerina and a hip hop dancer. She loves to sing really loudly! She loves to perform at her church, even choreographing some songs! She remembers every detail about special events, even from many years ago. She is a wiz at computer games, beating many of them multiple times. She can remember every word to her favorite shows she loves to watch "Leave it to Beaver. Bethany writes scripts of her favorite shows, taking the characters and making up adventures of her own. They are really funny! I've never met someone quite like my sister. She is so amazing. I wish I had her loving heart! I think about my sister each day, and am so proud of her. Whenever I'm sad, I'll usually think of a funny joke she told me and it instantly makes me happy. I am so thankful for my sister. I love her with all my heart.
